Cloudvale is, along with Nettle Town and Jalop Town, one of three small towns in West Godra that does not have a Gym. Cloudvale is populated primarily by wealthy members of society who left the larger, busier city of Omoth in order to live a quiet life. Despite being few in number, the citizens of Cloudvale actually carry with them tremendous political weight due to their extensive lobbying and major political donations. It is due to this political weight that they managed to pass the 'Demilitarized Suburban Zones' law, which restricted military access to the three 'Suburban' population centers Cloudvale, Nettle Town, and Jalop Town.
Cloudvale is one possible starting location for the player character at the opening of Godra Region.
If the player starts in Cloudvale, they can of course get a potion from the computer in their room.Also, the player can play a minigame on the NES in their room, where they have to catch balls with a basket. There are three levels; catching 20, 50, and 100 balls. Once they've completed all of them, they'll be able to fight and catch a lvl 5 shiny Porygon.
